A new standard in narrative actuality.
Desert Vet is a multi-layered documentary series set in an unforgiving land. Its roars and claws, action adventure and human-animal interest stories all wrapped into a new genre of actuality that will reposition animal and vet shows like never before. It’s Dr Harry meets Mad Max, Bondi Vet on steroids, and real as never before.
Meet Rick Fenny. Remember Red Dog? Rick was his vet. Rick is Australia’s most interesting vet you’ve never heard of. He’s old school. He’s a man of the road and he’s quietly gone about establishing one of the largest, well respected network of Veterinary practices in Western Australia – which is home to some of the most isolated towns on Earth.
Rick’s work, his family and his team of vets is spread across the vast wilderness and remote suburban areas of Western Australia (including an open-air shark aquarium) and they all have one thing in common – they bloody love working with animals.
Honest, dramatic, laconic and intriguing, Desert Vet is a docu-ality series for the new-age. A story that explores companionship, bush ingenuity, career passion, and old school legacy.
